Fun to use, not too difficult to learn, doesn't come with writing tablet

  • Feb 7, 2011

Autodesk Sketchbook Pro 2011 is an interesting program. The program installed flawlessly within about 5 minutes and runs perfect on the Windows 7 operating system. It runs smooth and quick without any delay. The first thing I noticed about this program is that it can be easily used by kids for simple drawings but there is so much more that you can do with it with some practice.

There are loads of different airbrushes, pencils, markers, pens and brushes with countless different colors, thicknesses and shapes. You can save your favorite custom brushes to the palette. My kids and I both enjoy drawing and this program makes it fun and easy to do. All the different toolbars are pretty easy to figure out so there isn't a huge learning curve. You can easily add text and pictures to your masterpiece and even email it from within the program.

My only complaint about this program is about the way that it is advertised. When you watch the Amazon video about the program it gives you the impression that it comes with a writing tablet but it doesn't. The writing tablets are very costly and must be purchased separately. I am new to these types of programs otherwise maybe I would have knew better.
